Together with the Danish Ministry of Environment, Novo Nordisk has released the pharmaceutical industry's first Environmental Profit and Loss (E P&L) account identifying the costs and areas for reduction related to water consumption, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and air pollution.

NOVO ALLE, Denmark, Feb. 27 /CSRwire/ - Novo Nordisk has become the first pharmaceutical company in the world to publish an Environmental Profit and Loss (E P&L) account. The story behind the E P&L is told in the latest issue of Novo Nordisk’s sustainability magazine – TBL Quarterly.

The results of the E P&L show the total environmental costs related to water consumption, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and air pollution, analysing how the company can manage risks and identify areas with potential for reductions.

“Novo Nordisk has a long history of environmental responsibility and we continuously seek to provide transparent disclosures of practices and performance. The E P&L is a natural next step in this journey,” says Susanne Stormer, vice president, Corporate Sustainability, Novo Nordisk.

In addition to Novo Nordisk’s E P&L, the new issue of TBL Quarterly looks behind the annual social and environmental performance numbers to tell the stories of how the company works with business ethics, company diversity and environmental, social and governance (ESG) data management.
